Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.
Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
